Residents are being offered a unique opportunity to enhance their numerical and cookery skills with a free course called 'Cooking Counts,' which is set to be rolled out across the county.

The course, funded by the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, aims to promote numeracy and culinary capabilities through practical activities and group discussions over a six-week period.

  Cooking Counts

This event starts at 13/06/2024 01:00pm and is being held at Newtown Integrated Family Centre. Tickets free. Click here for more information.

With sessions running for two hours each week, participants will have the chance to not only improve their skills but also engage in hands-on learning experiences.

To ensure an optimal learning environment, group sizes will be limited to 6-8 people per session, depending on the venue. As a result, interested individuals are encouraged to book their spots early to secure a place.

Participants who complete the course will receive a complimentary recipe book and a goody bag containing kitchen utensils valued at approximately £20.

Cllr Richard Church, Cabinet Member for a Safer Powys, said:

"This free opportunity gives you the chance to develop your numeracy and cookery skills as part of a small group, and with the course available in venues across the county, it has ensured that it's open to all to take advantage of.

"It's fantastic to receive the funding to bring courses such as this to Powys, and I would really encourage all residents to sign up, if they can."

The 'Cooking Counts' courses will start at Newtown Family Integrated Centre on June 13th at 1pm. Other dates include:

  • 20/06/2024 - 13:00 - 15:00
  • 27/06/2024 - 13:00 - 15:00
  • 04/07/2024 - 13:00 - 15:00
  • 11/07/2024 - 13:00 - 15:00
  • 18/07/2024 - 13:00 - 15:00
